'm the senate republican whip jon kyl of arizona. by now, but americans the lawmakers are engaged in a difficult debate about the debt ceiling, the legal limit to the amount of money the federal government can borrow. the debt ceiling is currently set at a little more than $14 trillion and if the congress and the president don't reach an agreement to raise it by tuesday, the treasury secretary tells us america will no longer be able to pay its bills. the consequences of missing this deadline could be severe. it is precisely because of washington barrault's so much money, more than 40 cents out of every dollar spent. spending would have to shrink by 40% quickly. what is more, markets would likely respond, dropping in value and hurting their retirement savings of millions of americans. republicans have tried to work with democrats to avoid this result and put our country on a better path, but we need them to work with us. we start from the understanding that the reason the debt ceiling is a problem is because of runaway washington spending. republicans have been united in the belief that raising t

leader represented house republicans, jon kyl for senate republicans, and that vice president. they have been talking about all lot of cuts, both to discretionary and non- discretionary spending, but there the problem is that it does not seem to add at to what they would need to meet the president's requirements to get the country through the next election. that would be somewhere in the area of $2.4 trillion increase in the debt ceiling. john boehner has made it clear that for any increase in the debt ceiling, they will not need more than a one-one increased ratio. quite frankly the democrats have not agreed to that level of cuts. it looks like they will go back today, scour potential areas of saying that they have talked about, and see how much they can agree to and go from there. agree to and go from there. host: in your article from yesterday's with the headline " boehner tells conference big deal no longer operative," you said that there were criticisms for the grand bargain. he pays -- he faced opposition from eric cantor. they presented a united front before the gop conference whi
